So... I guess it wasn't just the burning it down she's upset about. Not that I'm taking sides or anything, I'm just the writer. Figures that I would be looking forward to doing these pages the most, doesn't it?

Atty may have a good arguement, but by jove he's not going to use it when he knows her thinking he's a monster might make her stop following him.


See y'all soon.

Oh.. He's not good at all... never mind the fact that if he didn't do what he did, you'd be dead right now. :/

At least Atty gets what he wants (to be rid of her) I guess...

Well, if anything it's the bugs fault for flying about like a chicken with its head cut off. They could have just dropped on the dirt road to put themselves out or...well...you know, pass out or accept their cruel fate.

But anyway, you are the writer h0ly and a very clever one at that. There is always a method to some form of madness.

I just realized, she yelled at him for the trees and pokemon, but what about the other trainers who were in the forest? Does no one care about them? They all had families you know! Even though we don't know their names and such, but they had lives too. I mean sure, they were simple cannon fodder for us to train our pokemon and steal their money, but they were probably still conten-

O.O "..." There are a few things I must say about this situation...

1) He actually looked pretty hurt when he was first talking back in reply to her bitching at him
2) It's not that hard to believe that he was trying to get rid of her just then
And 3) I wanna kinda start yelling at Atty for making a girl cry.

If he tried to make me cry, the first thing I'd do would be to either kick him in any sensitive area that I could reach, tackle him down to the ground and almost dislocate his arms behind his back while I was sitting on his spin and had one foot on his head with the other between his shoulders, slap or punch him as hard as I could, or I'd rely on my old favorite... Take a blunt object and hit him with it as hard as I can swing with it! ^_^

Erm .. "He burned it down to save her."

Unlikely. He went back and lost his exit to save his bag (and saved her in the process). But then they were all in danger because there was no way out. I highly doubt that any human being, let alone one as flawed as Atty (which is NOT a bad thing, character-wise), would be thinking of the annoying girl's life when EVERYONE involved is in danger.

And, no, it doesn't make sense from where we are sitting for her to blitz out. But if I was in her shoes, and was witness to as traumatic an event as a bunch of monster bugs trying to kill me (for seemingly no reason!) only to result in a huge loss of life (history, possible trainers inside, the wildlife other than the bugs), I would be freaking out too. Never even mind the huge dose of disillusionment she's just been handed.

But if I'd just made that choice in order to save my own bum and consequently the lives of others, I can agree with Atty's reactions as well.

Both of these characters and their behaviors are well-thought-out. Kudos to the artist. C:

It wasn't Atticus's fault. It was Nintendo's for giving H0ly a forest. Atticus did what he did out of self-defense, the DT was ordered and H0ly has an incessant need to destroy nice things. Nintendo should have had more foresight with this matter.

I have a feeling it'll go like this..."Yeah...Wait! Brent! I know! I'll show you how to be good, make friends, and....change you for the better!!!"
And so George follows Atty forever with a good excuse. (like Misty and her bike)

Potential For Awesome Speech Atticus: *Walking Away* Let me ask you something? How are people suppose to prevent this from happening? You give a bunch of 10 year old kids dangerous animals, tell them to fight and capture these animals, and yet one single ember of fire is enough to cause all this. What is suppose to happen. Is the fire suppose to magically disappear, and the insect magically unharmed. If we don't capture it, how can it be saved. Does it just recovered on its own. Well, *laughing morbidly* see yah. *Continued Walking*

Hey, he doesn't have to be good nor bad. He didn't want to be out here to begin with. He's just doing whatever the heck he needs to do to get on with this god-forsaken situation. As far as I'm concerned, it was completely out of his hands anyway.

* It was self-defense
* He didn't MAKE the bug Pokemon spread the fire
* Oh, come on. Like he's the ONLY one who's used a fire attack in that damned forest?

If Pokemon merely faint after being struck by Fire Blast, I'm sure they can escape a forest fire. Well, unless they're dead in this universe of yours. If so, then all Pokemon will die in battles regardless - or get seriously maimed.

At least this may make her quit following him. Except, eh, I kind of see her doing some kind of turn-of-revelation thing perhaps. Like.. "Well, you can't be THAT bad... but if I follow you and change your ways I'm sure you'll be the BESTEST BEST GUY AROUND" or something. >_>
